Pork. You know, sometimes it gets a bad wrap. Or maybe that’s just me. I don’t know. My husband is always trying to eat pork chops and for some reason, I’m always like “ehh” even though I clearly have some good pork recipes in my arsenal.
Anyway, I recently cooked up 2 great recipes and thought I just had to share. Of course, they turned out better than I had imagined so I only have a few pictures. #bloggerproblems Today, I’m sharing some Curried Pork and Green Beans and some Pork Fried Rice.
Curried Pork and Green Beans
For this recipe, you need:
1/2 pound of pork loin
1-2 cups of fresh green beans
2-3 garlic cloves, chopped
1 box of curry cous cous
1/2 cup chicken broth
2-3 tablespoons of curry powder
1-2 tablespoons of butter
Here’s what you do:
1. Heat the butter and garlic cloves for 2-4 minutes until the garlic softens.
2. Add pork and brown. Add curry powder and coat completely.
3. Add green beans and chicken broth. Simmer until the broth is absorbed and the green beans are cooked but not too mushy.
4. Meanwhile, cook the cous cous in a separate pot.
5. Serve the pork over the cous cous and enjoy!
Next up, Pork Fried Rice.
Here’s what you need:
2 cups cooked short-grain rice
2 cups broccoli
1 1/2 cups pork, cubed
1/4 cup green onions
1 cup carrots, chopped thin
2 tablespoons sesame oil
1/2 soy sauce
sesame seeds for garnish
And here’s what you do:
1. Put half the sesame oil in a pan and heat. Cook the pork and remove from the pan.
2. Add the rest of the sesame oil and saute the broccoli and carrots for 10 minutes.
3. Add the rice to the pan and the soy sauce, stir to incorporate the soy sauce. Add more sauce if you’d like. Let the rice fry for 5-7 minutes.
4. Add the pork and continue to mix the ingredients until heated thoroughly. Add the green onions and cook for 2-3 minutes.
5. Serve with toasted sesame seeds.
So, there we have it. Two delicious meals for the “other” white meat. What’s your favorite pork meal?
